Sharon Osbourne told British GQ that she'd like to punch Madonna.

Madonna shouldn't expect any dinner invites from Sharon Osbourne. The rocker's wife named the Kabbalah devotee as one of three "nightmare" dinner guests.

"I would like to punch her," Osbourne told British GQ in an article due to come out shortly, according to UK reports. "She is so full of [bleep]. She's into Kabbalah one minute, she's a Catholic the next. She'll be a Hindu soon, no doubt." Osbourne's other "nightmare" dinner guests included Mick Jagger and Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music.

Osbourne, who is no stranger to the plastic surgeon's knife herself, also had some surprisingly harsh comments for some other stars who've allegedly been nipped and tucked.

"Melanie Griffith has destroyed herself," Osbourne said. "She was this lovely, fresh, blonde Californian girl, and now she's just grotesque — it's so sad." Of Mickey Rourke, she said, "God! He obviously hates himself, doesn't he? If you are constantly seeking approval and celebrity then it can do that to you, which is scary." And regarding Michael Douglas: "Now that's another terrible face job. Christ. Poor old [bleep — rhymes with 'swat.']"

Madonna's rep took the high road. "I'd sure love to have dinner with Bryan Ferry and Madonna anytime," spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg told The Scoop. "I think they're two of the most fascinating people I've ever met. Don't know Jagger. And have no idea why Sharon Osbourne finds Madonna loathsome because she has found a form of spirituality which she has studied seriously for ten years and that gives her serenity in her life."

New Kids didn’t get their props
Donnie Wahlberg laments how The New Kids on the Block never got respect.

The former boy-bander, when asked if he has any regrets, spoke out about the once-wildly popular band while promoting his new flick, "Saw II."

"We never really kind of quite felt a real level of respect, you know what I mean?" he said. "I mean the fame was fantastic. The benefits are great, but that wasn't that important to me, because for every million people that loved me I really focused on the one that hated me just as much, so part of me always kind of wants to go back and say, look, we were talented, we were good — watch this."

Notes from all over
Toni Braxton has cleared up those rumors that she feuded with Mariah Carey — sort of. "We are cordial friends," Braxton told Rap-Up magazine. "In the ’90s, everyone was so competitive. Everyone was trying to have their moment. Now we look at each other and we're like, 'We're still here.' We never really talked in the past. It's not that we didn't like each other, but we were artists trying to hold onto our moments. Now we have a different admiration for one another."   . . . Drew Barrymore has a lot of new fans in Brazil. The actress went to the South American country last week with her boyfriend, Stokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti, who is half Brazilian. "Drew was extremely low key, walked around with her boyfriend in Rio, posed for pictures, gave autographs and smiled," says our source there. "At the concert she mingled with the crowd, bought her own beer and watched the show dancing and smiling to everybody. Brazilian celebrities were far less friendly than she was so everybody is nuts about her."  . . . Kenny Chesney had some wistful comments about his divorce from Renée Zellweger. The  country music singer, who was briefly married to the actress, tells an upcoming issue of Life magazine: "It was like opening the door to our house and having someone come in and take your big-screen TV off the wall during the big game, and there's nothing you can do about it."
